4.0 out of 5 stars good but not the best, 22 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is one of the top products, but not the best. The best in my experience is OBENAUFS LP (made in Idaho) which contains Beeswax, propolis and other oils.

Renapur has beeswax and jojoba oil. It smells wonderful but the after effect/patina (touch/feel) is more waxy than Obenaufs.

I have used Renapur on a leather jacket and Obenaufs on another leather jacket (same type of leather), and I much prefer the effect of Obenaufs - it is easier to apply, soaks in better, and has a nicer classier after effect.

I will use Renapur for leather shoes and boots but not for a leather jacket. Even so, I prefer Obenaufs for shoes and boots because it doesn't leave such a waxy effect as Renapur.

I have no doubt that Renapur is a quality product which will protect the leather, the only reason that i mark it down slightly is based on the waxy after effect compared to Obenaufs LP.

Renapur is good, it's great, but it's not the best. The best is Obenaufs LP.

I have tried many other products (dubbin, oils, water based leather conditioners, pure beeswax) and I would say that pure beeswax comes a very close second to Obenaufs LP. It's harder to apply/spread, but has a great effect

5.0 out of 5 stars Comfortable and stylish, 18 Oct 2013
I recommend these Chelsea boots. They are stylish, lightweight, comfortable, easy on and off (no lacing), and so so comfortable due to the light weight and air soles.
Good grip too. Have worn them out and about and just felt so comfortable and happy. I was smiling...
Far better than blundstone and cheaper than RM Williams.
I also have other Dr martens boots and love their quality, style and comfort. Great value

5.0 out of 5 stars Exceeds expectations, 3 Jan 2011
materials: high quality
workmanship/stitching: high quality
design: great
functionality: great
sling and pad: great
velcro: great

This bag is very well designed and they have used the right materials at the right places.
Very practical and ideal.
One may assume they took into account feedback from consumers to make such an intelligent and likeable user-friendly bag....awesome :-)

5.0 out of 5 stars stylish and very practical, 3 Jan 2011
love these trousers
i have worn the kiwi style trousers by Craghoppers (own several pairs) and they are great - but what annoys me with that style is teh finnicky belt loops which make it difficult to thread a belt through....
These Trousers are fabulous - high quality as usual; great zips, TWO cargo pockets on the legs; and wider and more sensible belt loops.
Love it
Thanks

2.0 out of 5 stars lightweight fabric???!!!, 3 Jan 2011
i have almost a dozen Eastpak products (messenger; backpack; duffel bags; and wheeled carry on; moonbag/pouch; utility pouches etc)........this bag is by far the most disappointing in quality...for some reason it is very lightweight fabric...not as thick and waterproofed as other fabric.
The design, style and look are all good.....but materials used ...lightweight.
THat's my only issue with this particular bag.
It's a pity that Eastpak is not consistent with its quality specifications/materials.
I wonder why this particular factory cut corners with the fabric they used?
Thanks

4.0 out of 5 stars good bag, 3 Jan 2011
I'm happy with the bag - its fine.
The handle does not match the display photo....there is no molded plastic handle over the fabric...but instead just a padded fabric handle.
That aside, its a good bag and i thank Eastpak for their exciting range of durable and practical products - which are quite stylish too :-)

5.0 out of 5 stars EXCELLENT!!!!, 7 Oct 2010
I have read many books which expose the fallacy of religion from every angle (cult tactics; science; history; DNA; maths; etc). This book is extremely well written and he covers just the right topics in the right sequence/process to educate the reader from the basics as to HOW people get seduced by the lies of the clergy; how the clergy retain control over the minds of devotees (great explanation of cognitive dissonance) and great overview of logical fallacies as used by defenders of faith. Then he analyses the content of the Bible - the bizarre stories and doctrines. KABOOM ! he explodes the myths and exposes the patent folly and nonsense of the Bible.
I so wish i read this book as a teenager - i could have saved so many man-hours, money and headspace by knowing that the Bible is such illogical, implausible, impossible, anti-science, nonsensical trash which portrays a deity which is worse than the worst dictator and mass murderer.
GREAT BOOK - i strongly recommend this book to friends and especially to the slaves of religion who need help and liberation.
Friends don't let friends suffer from delusions/false beliefs.

5.0 out of 5 stars AWESOME!! packed with Sense and Sensibility, 7 Oct 2010
I was a bit dubious as to whether the content would be substantial in quantity and quality.
WOW! its packed with awesome quotes and gives proper references and context.
Love it - using the quotes already.
great to have in your personal library, to give as gifts and to discuss with friends (and irrationalists/religionists)
strongly recommend this book which is worth every penny
